“champagne afternoon tea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Took my sister to cup tea lounge on visit to Glasgow, had great afternoon.
Very welcoming staff made it enjoyable experience.
Delicious cakes and sandwiches, glass of champagne, then Prosecco. Could have stayed all evening but staggered out to the shops with left overs in a box.
Well recommened, treat your mother, sister, girlfriend.

“Wonderful deserts!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012 via mobile

Having been, on many occasions, for lunch/cakes, we decided to try deserts and cocktails one Saturday night.

The service was excellent, couldn't have been more helpful! The deserts were out of this world, do much choice. We liked the fact the fact the chef came out to speak to us. Prices were reasonable, bill lower than expected after trying several cocktails as well!!

My only comment would be to fix the spelling mistake on the menu (Cup Tea Lunge) - sorry, it's the teacher in me!!

We'll definately be back, planning our next trip already.....

“Afternoon Tea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Seven of us had Afternoon Tea at Cup Tea Lounge in Glasgow on 14 October and what a lovely experience it was. From entering the lounge you were made to feel special and nothing at all was a bother to the young man who served us. Friendly without being in your face. The food was excellent and the scones were made to order and brought to the table once the sandwiches were finished. They were FAB. In fact it was all FAB. Some of us were on a special deal with Travelzoo but, even if we had not been, would have been worth paying the full price. I have had Afternoon Tea in a 5* hotel and it was not nearly as good as we had yesterday. Top marks to everyone concerned. Our husbands all loved their "doggy" bag as none of us could finish the food and the staff suggested we take it home. Not something we Brits are good at but so glad we did. I will certainly be telling the rest of my friends about this place. So well worth a visit and the service we received could not have been better. Well done to all concerned.

“Relaxing Tea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

We had a voucher for the champagne afternoon tea & were made to feel very welcome right from the start. The surroundings were really different & the friendly & attentive Manager told us the history of the building while we drank our excellent champagne. The tea was really lovely, with the scones arriving hot out of the oven (not the microwave as in many establishments) after we had finished our tasty sandwiches. A good selection of fruit cake, cupcakes etc. & an excellent choice of teas, served correctly (we were even given a timer to ensure we let it stand for the recommended time).The tea was really generous, even with healthy appetites & nothing eaten since breakfast, we had to leave several items. We would certainly return on any future visits to Glasgow. A lovely start to our Glasgow visit.
